Tennant's anthropic argument
Tennant developed a set of evidences that are widely recognised as anthropic principles today, including beliefs such as:

  • The very fact that the natural world in which we live provides precisely the things that are necessary for life to be sustained
  • The fact that the natural world in which we live can not only be observed but holds itself up for rational analysis from which we can deduce its working
  • The fact that the process of evolution, through natural selection, has led to the development of intelligence human life - to the degree that intelligent life can observe and analyse the universe it exists in

All of these beliefs are evidence that God exists
